SUNY Potsdam Announces Free Application Week

January 8, 2024

SUNY Potsdam Offers Free Application Week for Undergraduate Applicants, from Jan. 13 to 21, 2024

SUNY Potsdam is making it easier for undergraduate applicants to check an item off their college to-do lists, to start the New Year off right.

SUNY Potsdam will offer a Free Application Week for all freshman and transfer applicants, from Saturday, Jan. 13 through Sunday, Jan. 21.

“We wanted to make it as easy as possible for anyone who is considering SUNY Potsdam to make the leap and apply. We even extended our Free Application Week to include the weekends beforehand and afterward, to open up this opportunity to as many students as we can,” said Director of Admissions Terry Francis ’97 & ’00.

To take advantage, students just need to apply between Jan. 13 and 21, using either the SUNY Application or the Common Application. During the period, the campus will cover the $50 application fee for all undergraduate applications.

The Free Application Week builds on SUNY Potsdam’s emphasis on holistic admissions and access. SUNY Potsdam was proud to be the first campus in the SUNY System to move to test-optional admissions in 2010, shifting to an admissions process that focuses on applicants’ track records in high school and/or college, rather than standardized test scores.

For anyone who is still curious about the campus, the Office of Admissions is open for personalized tours. To set up a visit or a chat with an admissions counselor, go to
